ie 5 mac - bottom-border color not working

P: n/a
I have been using border styles on form inputs and I have noticed that
on Internet Explorer 5.2 Mac the border color always comes out as
link-colour blue, no matter what color I specify. This also happens if
I try to give a bottom border to a table cell or a div.

Here is an example (see the search box on the homepage):

www.focusdiy.co.uk

I am defining the style like so:

input.blueBox {font: 0.70em Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
height:16px; border:inset 1px solid #345C90;
background-color:#DDEBFF;}

Am I doing anything wrong or is this a known bug (I have looked on a
few websites and it is not mentioned)?

Cheers,
Olly

It's always a good idea to validate your code before asking, that way
you can eliminate simple typos and the like before revealing them in
public...

I am defining the style like so:

input.blueBox {font: 0.70em Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
height:16px;
What if 0.7em is larger than 16 pixels?
border:inset 1px solid #345C90;


Is it inset or is it solid? It's quite possible that some browsers are
ignoring the 4th value (as border can only take 3 values) and may even
be treating 'solid' as a mangled colour.

Gibberish. The border-style is either "inset" or "solid", not both.
